About the Show/Event
Information for The Royal Ballet - Concerto/Enigma Variations/Raymonda Act III at Royal Opera House, West End (Dance or ballet). From The Royal Ballet's classical origins in the works of Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa's Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton's Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way - from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton's signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillan's fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of the Company's heritage.
Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan (Concerto). Choreographer Marius Petipa (Raymonda Act III). Choreographer Fredrick Ashton (Enigma Variations).
